Leavesden Hospital Cemetery Project

Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies

In November 2021, Leavesden Hospitals History Association won the Gathering and Preserving Heritage award, which focuses on the process of collecting heritage and preserving or stewarding heritage.

Leavesden Hospitals History Association was also awarded the overall winner of the Best Community Archive and Heritage Group of 2021.

In assessing the Leavesden Hospitals History Association project, the judges were impressed with the scale of work and effort provided by participants in the project to undertake cemetery restoration.

Alongside this, however, was the incredible range of activities and platforms designed to ensure the stories were maintained. It was clear audiences had a wide range of ways in which they could engage with the heritage.

You see a register of the names of those buried at the Leavesden Asylum/Hospital Cemetery here.
